derangement some-vhere in the genital organs, caused by oe or more of
those common disorders known as " female trohbks". Wbu of Cardui
is the remedy. It puts the oigans of generation in a stron? and healthy
condition, fitting the wife for the sacred duty of reprodecinr her kind.
During the period of gestation the entire system of the eipcunt mother

The English, according to Science
Pour Tout, hav& adopted quite an orig
inal plan. In manyhouaes, on the table
by the side of the pepper bar and the
salt bos is placed a sand box a little
receptacle filled with very fine sand, as
fine as flour, which is sprinkled over
all the food. A medical journal has ad
vised dyspeptics to adopt this remedy"
The sand, mingling with the alimen
tary mass, loaders it less compact and
makes digestion more easy. This ha3
become the fashion, and since the Eng
lish have begun to eat sand it is certain
that French enobs who imitate their
neighbors across the channel like mon
keys will soon be devouring it Besides,
gravel for digestive purposes has been
in use by ostriches for a' long time.
